  • DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S NEWEST REALITY SHOW TAKES ON GLOBAL CATASTROPHE -- AND DOES IT ALL WRONG.

    First Look: The Colony is Just Another Senseless "Social Experiment"

    Why is Hollywood so obsessed with the destruction of the world? Maybe it's because post-apocalyptic societies are fun for the special effects crew. Think about it: They get to engineer over-the-top explosions and large-scale disasters, and the makeup artists get to have a field day. Or maybe it's because end-of-the-world scenarios allow the actors to explore uncharted emotional territory. After all, no one knows what would really happen in a global emergency. But we've already dealt with nearly every known natural disaster on either the big- or small-screen, and recent films like Children of Men and Wall-E have addressed human extinction and pollution, respectively. So where does that leave us? What has Hollywood forgotten? Oh, right. A reality show.
